My name is Charlie, and I'm an English teacher from Cornwall, England. I studied anthropology at the University of Oxford, one of the oldest universities in the world, and I have my own NGO who work in language and culture for refugees and migrants.
I have been teaching English for more than three years to learners of all levels, especially from beginners from Brazil and Spanish-speaking Latin America. I speak fluent Spanish and English, as well as a little bit of Chinese Mandarin, but I like to teach classes in English so that my students get lots of practise! I live in Santiago, Chile.
I like to structure classes around conversation - maximising the opportunities for students to practise their spoken English. We will focus on grammar and pronunciation so that the English you speak is not only fluent, but correct! Please go ahea and book a class with me!
